Miskatonic Monday: the Miskatonic Repository goes Down Darker Trails, and other eldritch places...

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 20th Aug 2018

The Medicine Show is a great example of taking material from one setting and adapting it for another for the Miskatonic Repository. The scenario originally appeared in Tory Wilhelmson's Devil’s Gulch: Basic Roleplaying Adventures in the Weird West supplement. Community content creator Jonathan Meadows got permission from Troy and Chaosium to update this scenario to Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition and move the setting from Devil’s Gulch to the San Rafael setting from Call of Cthulhu's Old West supplement Down Darker Trails.
